REPORTS OF BOARDS AND COMMITTEES. 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE OX CHURCH 

TIONS. 



PURLICA- 



The printing press is one of the recognized instruments of power of 
our time. Every enterprise, secular and religious, recognizes the necessity 
for this arm of power. All religious organizations appreciate the potency of 
this written voice to disseminate their views and propagate their peculiar 
polity and doctrine. If this be an age of reading it is also true that much 
of the present day literature is of a sensational and vicious character. There 
is a winged, flying host of this literature. It is as omnipresent as the flies 
and frogs of Egypt and more loathsome and contaminating. It is the opin- 
ion of your Committee that the only way to avert this plague is by the sub- 
stitution of literature that is pure and wholesome. 

It is a matter of felicitation that the literature coming from our House 
is uniformly of an uplifting and healthful nature. 

The Methodist press is doing its part in illuminating and elevating fall- 
en and benighted man. 

Your Committee repeats, with emphasis, its belief that we are multiply- 
ing papers beyond the limits of sound policy and at the expense of failing to 
reach the highest efficiency in this field of usefulness. We think that fewer 
papers, a larger circulation, and better papers should be our motto. With- 



24 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

out this our Christian Advocates can never be the instruments of power 
they should be. (The Book Committee have felt themselves authorized in ap- 
propriating $ of the produce of the Publishing House to the 

superanuates and widows and orphans of deceased traveling preachers of 
the M. E. Church, South.) The Sunday-school Department increases in 
popularity, usefulness and prosperity. Our Methodist Review is a very able 
and instructive periodical, and merits a wider reading than it has secured. 
Our preachers and laymen should become subscribers of this interesting and 
able publication. We notice with pleasure that it has been changed from a 
quarterly to a bi-monthly and that the editor in visiting from conference to 
conference is reaping an ample harvest of subscriptions. Since our last re- 
port the Epworth Era, the official organ of our young people's movement has 
made its appearance, We greet kindly its bright face. As its recent unfor- 
tunate utterance has been repented of, we hope that forgiveness will be com- 
plete, and that henceforth it will spread only the "words of truth and sober- 
ness." Our connectional organ, the Nashville Christian Advocate, is more 
than self-sustaining and approximates the ideal both in its mechanical and 
literary execution. We should generally subscribe for it and heartily sus- 
tain it. Our own excellent organ, the New Orleans Advocate, gives every in- 
dication of having taken a new lease on life and increasing prosperity. 
Before it can attain its maximum of influence and usefulness, there is much 
inertness and apathy to be overcome. Let all our preachers make public ap- 
peals and private solicitations in its behalf. Let us not only resolve, but 
heartily and promptly do, until our united efforts shall lift our paper to the 
plane it ought to occupy in the public favor. It is edited with ability, filled 
with useful and interesting matter, neatly printed and issued from d great 
commercial center. 

Resolved, That we approve of the management of our various publishing 
interests at Nashville and commend the Publishing House to the favor and 
patronage of our people. 

Resolved, That we will do more to aid our editor and publisher in ex- 
tending among our people the circulation of our New Orleans Advocate. 

Resolved, That S. S. Keener, J, M. Beard and J. B. A. Ahrens, be con- 
tinued as the Publishing Committee of this Conference.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON BIBLE CAUSE. 

The history of the Reformation and its subsequent evangelical develop- 
ments presents to the student of civilization and of the kingdom of Christ a 
record of the power of the printed Bible, the chief factor in the development 
of both. Contemporaneous with the Reformation was the development of 
the printer's art, and first among the products of the press was the Word of 
God. From that time to this, protestant evangelization has relied upon the 
work of Bible distribution as next in importance only to the proclamation of 
the Gospel by a living ministry. 

The experience of all missionary enterprises, both foreign and domestic, 
has ever borne witness to the efficacy of the printed Bible, although it be 
without note or comment. The Word itself is the vehicle of life and the 4 
Holy Spirit has set His seal upon this divine book in every language and 
among all peoples of the world. The facts known to intelligent Christians 
are sufficient to commend the cause which this committee represents without 
argument. 

Without further comment we call attention to the abstract of the Seven- 
ty-eighth Annual Report of the American Bible Society. From this report 
we learn that the work of the Society is progressing in all departments; the 
field of operation is enlarging and the facilities for publication are being 
multiplied. The Society is not only printing in America, but in the regions 
beyond, from Constantinople to Japan, editions of the Word of God are 
being issued in many languages and dialects. Not only are many thousands 
of Bibles and portions being distributed, but there is a work of translation 
and revision going on all the time which no other missionary organization or 
denominational publishing house could possibly accomplish with their pre- 
sent resources. Considered from this point of view the work of the Ameri- 
can Bible Society presents a claim upon the Church for support and co- 
operation which cannot be resisted. 

Our own Church is fully committed to this work and has placed the col- 
lection for the American Bible Society on the register of its required benev- 
olences. And our last General Conference has emphasized this obligation by 
incorporating this work in the regular minute business of the Annual Con- 
ference, and also making it obligatory upon every preacher in charge to pre- 
sent the claims of the Society in his charge once a year and report the con- 
tribution secured to the Annual Conference. 

This year only about thirty charges have reported any collections, the 
total amount raised being $341.00, $307.00 of this amount coming from one 
district. This indicates that the presentation of the cause has not been 
general. We desire to commend the official literature of the Society, believ- 
ing that if this is read it will greatly increase the general interest of preach- 
ers and people in the work.

REPORT OF BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

The action of the General Conference of our Church creating a General Board 
of Education was a recognition and an emphasis of a wide spread, it not a univer- 
sal, sentiment favoring an earnest, well-planned and well-sustained forward move- 
ment in Educational matters. This sentiment, which is in perfect accord with the 
principles of applie'd Christianity and with the genius of Methodism needs just now 
proper direction only, for the enlargement and firmer establishment of our Church 
Schools. To direct this sentiment, in so far as the Methodists of Louisiana are 
concerned, is the province and the duty of the body of ministers and laymen who 
constitute this Annual Conference., To fail to direct it will be to neglect conditions 
of advantage never before offered to us. Now, as in response to every popular de- 
mand, the world is quick to offer a supply, if not of the best quality, at least suffi- 
cient in extent and. in attractiveness, to satisfy a somewhat undisceming public ; 
and unless the Church thoroughly equips, sufficiently endows and largely adver- 
tises her own institutions of learning without delay, her opportunity will be lost. 
If effort shall concentrate upon Centenary and Mansfield Colleges, both of noble 
record and large usefulness, our demand for higher education, at least, will be fully 
met. 

CENTENARY COLLEGE. 

Since the last session of this Conference several important changes have been 
made in the faculty of Centenary College. Dr. W. L. C. Hunnicutt, after years 
of faithful and excellent work, resigned the presidency of the college, and Dr. C. 
W. Carter, an honored member of this Conference, was elected his successor, en- 
tering upon his duties at the opening of the present session. Two additional in- 
structors were at the same time added to the family — J. M. Sullivan to the chair 
of physics, and C. C. Wier to the chair of English. As now constituted, the fac- 
ulty is adequate and able. We congratulate the Board of Trustees and the Meth- 
odist public upon the enlargement of facilities thus secured, and note with pleas- 
ure the immediate good results in the large number of new students now in attend- 
ance. Of the ninety who have matriculated for the session, forty- five are new stu- 
dents. Of these ninety, eight are young preachers, and eleven are sons of preach- 
ers. The increase of students over last year's enrollment is 26, with the Spring 
term increase still to be added. Twenty-six parishes of our own State are repre- 
sented in the student body, with members also from Texas, Mississippi, Alabama 
and Honduras. 

The college is in need of funds, both for improvement of buildings and to 
meet the salaries of the professors. For the former purpose special donations must 
be secured, and we urge upon our people the wisdom of immediate response to this 
call. For the latter purpose the interest now due, and falling due, on endowment 
notes would largely suffice, could this interest be collected. We urge immediate 
payment. We may be forced to suffer loss from a faculty from which we can not 
afford to lose a man, if this matter is longer neglected. The college is entering 
upon what promises to be the most prosperous period of its career, and we can not 
afford to arrest its progress by depriving it of means. 

MANSFIELD FEMALE COLLEGE. 

The report of the president of Mansfield College shows an attendance of fifty- 
nine stndents the present session, of whom ten are daughters of preachers in this 
Conference. The establishment of a free high school at Mansfield has drawn from 
the college patronage largely, and will continue to do so in the future. To com- 
pete with this school on the plane of tuition will be impossible so long as the col- 
lege remains unendowed ; the competition must be on the issue of better advan- 
tages to the student, and these advantages the faculty is supplying, and will con- 
tinue to furnish. The Departments of Music, Art, Foreign Languages and Ancient 
Languages are all well officered, and the instruction in the Literary Department is 
extended and thorough. We cordially recommend this excellent school to our 
membership throughout the Conference.

PAINE AND LANE INSTITUTES. 

The colored education work of our Church is confined, so far as Church ac- 
tion is concerned, to Paine Institute, Augusta, Ga , and Lane Institute, at Jack- 
son Term. Each of these excellent schools is presided over by a minister of our 
own Church, and each deserves the hearty sympathy and support of our people. 
The sum of two hundred dollars is asked of this Conference during the coming 
year for this work by the General Board of Education, and we urge its collection 
in full. 

The report of the Treasurer of this Board shows the receipts from collections 
during the year now closing to be four hundred and eighty-two dollars and twenty 
cents for education, and eighty-six dollars and ten cents for Paine and Lane Insti- 
tutes. In accordance with the resolution adopted by our Conference at its last 
session, the fund for education has been divided between Centenary and Mansfield 
Colleges, .Mansfield receiving $206.60, and Centenary $275.60. 

Your Board offers for adoption the following resolutions : 

Resolved, That the present Board of Managers be continued for Mansfield Fe- 
male College and for Pierce and Paine College. 

Resolved, That Rev. C. W. Carter be appointed president, and Rev. C. C. Mil- 
ler professor at Centenary College, and Rev. A. D. McVoy president and financial 
agent at Mansfield Female College. 

Resolved, That we cordially invite Prof. C. C. Wier, as agent for Centenary, 
and Dr. McVoy, agent for Mansfield, to visit the various charges of this Conference 
in the interest of these institutions. 

Resolved, That we instruct the Joint Board of Finance to apportion among 
the districts of this Conference the amounts asked for by the General Board of 
Education for our educational work, and for Paine and Lane Institutes. 

VVM. H. La PRADE, 

President. 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON TEMPERANCE. 

We realize that to consume the valuable time of this Conference in discuss- 
ing the evils of the traffic in alcoholic liquors is unnecessary. 

Surely every thoughtful man among us is fully aware of the fact that one 
of the most formidable enemies of the Church of God is to be found in the per- 
son of King Alcohol. 

We are also mindful of the fact that the M. E. C. S. has recognized the 
opposition of this enemy, and expressed herself repeatedly in no uncertain 
language — declaring that "the liquor traffic can never be licensed without sin;" 
and further, that "we are a prohibition church." By our general rules our 
Church is resolved into a total abstinence society, and none of our members may 
consistently indulge in social drinking. This advanced position is one of 
which every Methodist may well be proud, and still the results are so meagre, 
that we are led to fear that we have not done our whole duty. Our theory is 
admirable, but our practice is imperfect. 

We have all observed that the liquor traffic does not fear resolutions, 
because as a general thing they are ineffective. And just so long as we con- 
tinue to pass meaningless resolutions, just so long are we the object of the 
ridicule of those engaged in the whisky business. 

What we need is real effective opposition. And to the accomplishment of 
that purpose, some well defined policy must be adopted. 

Therefore, be it Resolved, That we recommend that our preachers begin by 
laboring with those members of our several charges who sell or drink intoxica- 



» 



28 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

ting liquors; and if they refuse to conform to the rules of our church, we will 
proceed as the discipline directs in such cases. 

And be it further Resolved. That we will preach at least one sermon during 
the coming year on the subject of total abstinence, and one sermon on prohibi- 
tion. 

And be it further Resolved, That we will use every possible effort, both in 
public and in private, to secure prohibition in the parishes where we reside. 

C. M. LYONS, 
T. J. UPTON, 
R. S. COLIER. 



REPORT OP SUNDAY SCHOOL BOARD. 

"We recognize that the Sunday School is an important factor in church 
work and that without it our children, or at least a large per cent of them, would 
never be trained and instructed in scriptural truths. 

The School as designed was not intended to take the place of home instruc- 
tion, but nevertheless, the fact stares us in the face; and, since this is so, we see 
the absolute importance of Sunday School work and the necessity of devoting 
much time and thought thereto. It is the nursery where the plant is to be 
trained and nursed that it may afterward bloom in and adorn the church of God. 

We deeply deplore, however, the fact, that the people seem to have the 
idea that the Sunday School is for the young alone; and we would suggest to, 
and seek to impress upon, the superintendents the fact that the grown people 
are needed in the school and should be there as well as the young. By reason 
of the absence of older people and their seeming indifference to this work, 
superintendents are often, if not nearly always, compelled to take young and 
inexperienced parties as their teachers. 

We note very few missionary societies in our schools and would call atten- 
tion to the fact that every school ought to be a missionary society. Our disci- 
pline states that there should be held in each district an Annual Sunday School 
Conference. So far we have heard of but three districts which have so done, 
viz: Opelousas, Delhi and Shreveport. Those held in Opelousas and Delhi dis- 
tricts were especially interesting. 

We hope the brethren will hold these meetings. We would also call 
attention to the Interdenominational State Sunday School Convention, which 
is to meet at Lake Charles next year and request that the presiding elders ap- 
point delegates from their several districts, who will go and be in attendance. 

This work is a grand ihing, brethren, for we should not neglect the lambs 
and in order not so to do we should get in touch with advance work and 
methods along this line. 

We would again, as last year, call attention to and request that the pre- 
siding elders turn in each year a written statement of the amount expended on 
Sunday Schools in their several districts and where so expended. The Board in 
studying the discipline, note that they are called upon to hold an Annual Con- 
vention of all Sunday School workman and hardly seeing their way clear to so 
do, have thought best that during the session of our Annual Conference one 
night be given up to thejSunday School work; we suggest that Friday night be 
so occupied. 

We have had laid before us considerable matter in reference to the Epworth 
League, and in reviewing it have been impressed with the fact that by these 
instrumentalities much good may and can be accomplished. 

We would stress it upon the brethren that they organize Leagues where 
practicable and seek to broaden the circulation of the Epworth Era.

'REPORT OF SECRETARY OF CONFERENCE 
BOARD OF MISSIONS. 

During the past year the Board has helped the following charges : New Or- 
leans District: — Lower Coast Mission, ioo.oo; Carrollton, #50.00; Grosse Tete and 
False River, $100.00. Shreveport District: — City Mission, #20000; Victoria, 
#62.50; West Natchitoches, #62.50, Arcadia District: — La Pine, $50.00; Sparta, 
#7500. Delhi District:— P. E. $50,00; Oakley, $75.00; Floyd, #100.00. Ope- 
lousas District: — French Mission, #150.00; Jackson St., and West Lake, #100.00; 
Sulphur Mine. #50.00. Alexandria District: — P. E. #20000; Nugent, #50.00; 
Ada, #50 00; Winfield, $50.00. We have aided sixteen charges and two presiding 
elder's districts, appropriating #1575.00 to needy sections of the work in our State. 
The collections for Foreign Missions during the past year have fallen off 
slightly while those of Domestic work show a slight increase. In view of the 
financial condition of the country this year the results are not discouraging. 

For the coming year we have appropriated to the Domestic Mission work 
#1565.00, divided as follows among the several districts: — New Orleans, #27000; 
Shreveport, #315,00, Alexandria, #275.00; Opelousas District, $260.00; Arcadia 
District, #65.00; Delhi District, #120.00; Baton Rouge District, #260.00; being a 
total of #1565.00. We needed at least 1 1000.00 more. We wisb now to empha- 
size the necessity of enlarging this fund. If we could secure larger collections for 
this cause it would be possible to concentrate our work and enable us to accom- 
plish twice as much as is now being done. 

We desire to call the attention of the Conference to the recent "Forward 
Movement" in missions projected by the General Board of Missions. The Board 
has requested us to take action with regard to the following particulars : 

First, by securing the appointment of a Conference Secretary. If financial or 
other conditions do not admit of his employ for travel, he could, at least, conduct 
all necessary correspondence in arranging for missionary mass meetings, concerts 
of prayer, and dissemination of Missionary information. 

• Second, by requesting the Presiding Elders to act as district secretaries. They 
would in that capacity co-operate with the Conference Secretaries, and in pursu- 
ance of the Disciplinary provisions already noted, aid the preachers in carrying out 
the plans of the General and Conference Boards. 

Third, by recognizing the preacher in charge as the local secretary who would 
devise plans for securing the missionary collections, foreign and domestic, organ- 
ize his Sunday Schools into Missionary Societies, and lead the monthly concert of 
prayer for missions. Such work would be most appropriate, since by the enact- 
ment of the General Conference he is made responsible for the holding of mission- 
ary meetings, the circulation of missionary literature and the education and inspir- 
ation of his people. 

We regard this as a very important movement, and, hence, the Conference 
Board by vote resolved to incorporate the above in the annual report. 

In compliance with the above request of the General Board, the Conference 
Board recommends the appointment of a Conference Secretary who shall attend 
to the various duties suggested, provided that this does not involve the appoint- 



30 Louisiana ' annual Conference* 

ment of a man to this work alone, as the Conference Board is not able to under- 
take the support of a traveling Secretary.

REPORT OF THE CORRESPONDING SECRETARY OF 

THE LOUISIANA CONFERENCE WOMAN'S 

MISSIONARY SOCIETY. 

"In a conversation once with a friendly Hindoo on the subject of Chris- 
tian Missions, Dr. Henry Martyn Clark said to him: 'Do you mind telling me 
which of all our methods you fear most?' 'Why should I put weapons in the 
hands of the enemy?' was the reply; 'but I will tell you. We do not greatly 
fear your schools; we need not send our children. We do not fear your books, 
for we do not read them. We do not much fear your preaching; we need not 
listen. But we dread your women and we dread your doctors, for your doctors 
are winning our hearts, and your women are winning our homes, and when 
our hearts and homes are won, what is left to us?' This winning of hearts and 
homes is what the Woman's Missionary Society is endeavoring to do; for this 
the Board plans, prays and seeks to bring into action the reserved force of 
woman's unused energy." Thus speaks our Foreign Secretary, giving to the 
church at large, in this brief summary, our raison d'etre. 

The Home Work of the Woman's Board is represented by Conference Soci- 
eties, 35; Auxiliary Societies, 3318; members, 72,588. Amount contributed 
during the year, from March 1, 1893, to March 1, 1894, $66,008.83. Since the 
organization, including money received for Training School, $889,261.66 has 
been collected. 

Literature. — The Woman's Missionary Advocate, the organ for adults, has a 
circulation of 13,000; the Little Worker, organ for juveniles, has a circulation 
of 9,000. A variety of fine leaflets on missionary topics, also maps of our mis- 
sion fields have been published, amounting to two million, five hundred and 
fifteen thousand pages. 

Missionaries — Thirty-seven are supported by the Society, and distributed 
as follows: 16 in China, 13 in Mexico, 8 in Brazil, besides many helpers in the 
Indian Mission. 

Foreign Work. — The Board ha3 work in China, Mexico, Brazil and Indian 
Mission. Reports represent all the work prospering. Theie are 12 boarding 
schools, and 40 day schools in successful operation, with an aggregate of 4000 
women and children under instruction. 

Bible Woman's Work is increasing in every field, much house to house 
visiting is done, and many are gladly hearing the word of life. 



FORTY-NINTH SESSION. 



31 



The work in the Louisiana Conference Society still maintains its hold upon 
the hearts and consciences of the Christian women ot the church, While many 
societies have dropped out, others have heen reorganized, and new ones 
have come in, and the present year marks a small increase in membership. 
The Conference Society is represented by 27 Auxiliaries, 618 members, 15 Juve- 
nile Societies, with 3;2(i members, making the total membership 944. This 
very small proportion of the whole membership of the church, whose members 
are largely women, will doubtless suggest to all pastors the imperative need of 
their coidial co-operation in "helping these women," in this supremely impor- 
tant work, which was entrusted first to Mary, when her Lord said, 'go tell my 
disciples," on that Easter morning eighteen hundred years ago. 

The Woman's Missionary Society again asks of the pastors a personal in- 
terest in their cause, that where no organization exists they will form one; 
where it is weak and discouraged they will up-build it; where the love of many 
has waxed cold in the cause, they will exhort to better things. "Inasmuch as 
ye have done it unto the least of these, ye have done it unto me."

ADDRESS OF THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE CON- 
FERENCE WOMAN'S MISSIONARY SOCIETY. 

In the name of the W. F. M. Society of Louisiana we greet you, and would 
tell something of the work accomplished by us during the past twelve months. 
We planned for, hoped and prayed and expected, greater results than we see. 
It is ours to put forth the effort, to plant the seed. It is God's to water and 
give the increase. Ws have not been idle, and while conscious that we have 
not done all we might have done, we know that the year has not been un- 
fruitful. Our State Organizer, Sister Alexander, has done good service. She 
has organized new societies where none existed, and re-organized and infused 
new life into many that were languishing. In every case the preachers have 
sustained her, and recognized her work as being legitimate, and have bidden 
her "God speed;'' for which, dear brethren, we thank you. It makes our work 
so much easier, to be thus assured of your co-operation and sympathy. The 
District Conference held in this city last Spring was an interesting occasion, 
productive of good. And our annual meeting at Lecompte was, indeed, a feast 
of good things to all who attended. There have not been as many Juvenile and 
Young People's Societies organized this year as in other years, from the fact 
that in most every Sunday School there is a Missionary Society, and in the 
Church an Epworth League, which supplies work for the children and young 
people. 

We regret that the Woman's Board has now, no Missionary from Louisi- 
ana in the foreign fields. Our own Miss Sallie Philips has recently married, 
thus severing her connection with the Woman's Board. We are praying the 
Lord of the harvest to raise up from our midst some consecrated woman to take 
her place. 

In the field of Missions there is a work for each and every one. Home 
and Parsonage work should never be neglected. I speak feelingly on this sub- 
ject. It is essential thai our preachers should have comfortable homes, and 
not be harassed and worried about providing a shelter for their loved ones. 
This is a needed work, and lies near to every preacher's heart, and nearer to 
the heart of every preacher's wife. Home Missions are important and seem 
our first duty, for the fields are white unto harvest, all around us, even at our 
doors. In this city there are thousands of poor, neglected souls starving for 
the bread of life. And in the rural districts of our State can be found commu-

nities which are in heathen darkness. They know nothing of Jesus and his 
love, nothing of the joys of religion. These things ought not so to be. It is 
our duty to carry unto them the living water. 

While Home Missions should receive our attention, Foreign Missions are 
never to be neglected. We are criminal in every sense if we heed not the 
commission, "Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to overy crea- 
ture." Can we ourselves hope for salvation if we neglect to obey this com- 
mand? 

Nineteen centuries have passed away, and onlv one-third of the popula- 
tion of the earth is christianized even nominally. It is said there are eight 
hundred millions to whom the name of Jesus Christ is unknown, and that in 
China alone fourteen hundred die every hour without hope in God. 

The conversion of the whole world is a work of such magnitude that it 
could only be conceived in the mind of Deity and be made possible by the in- 
carnation of the Son of God. To the human mind it seems impossible, but to 
the eye of faith it is attainable, for "all tbings are possible with God." His 
promises are "yea and amen." And he hath said to his Son : "I will give thee 
the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy 
possession." In this great work of evangelizing the world and bringing souls 
to Christ, woman has a special work given her to do, and which she alone can 
accomplish ; and which she has undertaken, and with God's help is doing in an 
humble, quiet way. One hundred years ago Women's Missionary Societies 
were unknown. To-day there are nearly thirty such societies in America 
alone, with twentv-five thousand auxiliaries, contributing nearly two million 
dollars annually. This woman's work for woman has been and will continue 
to be, an inspiration to our church, which has resulted in carrying the glad 
tidings to thousands of women in heathen lands. 

Oh ! that every child o/ God may feel the burden of immortal souls, and 
realize that the Father requires faithful, loving service from each of his 
children. 

"Let none hear you idly saying, 

'There is nothing I can do;' 

While the souls of men are dying, 

And the Master calls for you. 

Take the task he gives you gladly, 

Let his work your pleasure be; 

Answer quickly, when he calleth, 

'Here am I, send me, send me.' " 

MRS. T. K. FAUNT LE ROY, 
Vice-Pres. of the W. F. M. S. of the Louisiana Conference. 



REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S PARSONAGE AND HOME 

MISSION SOCIETY OF THE LOUISIANA 

CONFERENCE. 

The Woman's Parsonage and Home Mission Society, of the Louisiana 
Conference, was organized in New Orleans, Dec. 3,1891. Previous to that 
time, however, there were in existence several independent auxiliaries doing 
some excellent work. As all organizations have their difficulties in the be- 
ginning, so this society, being unable to provide the means of sending some 
one forth, to present the needs of this work to our people throughout the 
Conference, and to create a deeper interest in the new auxiliaries, made slow 
progress, or we would by this time have grown into a flourishing society. 



FORTY-NINTH SESSION. 33 

Of the 18 original auxiliaries, only 10 existed at our last annual meet- 
ing. Three auxiliaries were organized during 1893. At present the Con- 
ference Society has 19 adult and 7 juvenile auxiliaries, with a membership of 
about 362 adults and 173 juveniles. It is' very important indeed to enlist 
the children as they make such enthusiastic and diligent workers when right- 
ly interested. 

Mrs. E. E. Wiley, our beloved President, was with us at the annual 
meeting in February, 1894. Her visit was a blessing to all, giving fresh 
courage, strength and enthusiasm; and she won all hearts by her devotion to 
her blessed Redeemer. At the conclusion of the meeting, Mrs. Wiley, and 
our State Organizer, Miss Mary Werlein, made a trip through a portion of 
the State and formed auxiliaries. They reported the people ready to re- 
spond, after the needs and objects of our work were explained. The employ- 
ing of a State Organizer is the best way to build up the work; because noth- 
ing but active, personal effort will multiply our societies, and develop that 
strength which we need. Her success will depend upon the assistance ren- 
dered by the Pastors, in presenting the work favorably to the women of their 
charges. The office of District Secretary is a valuable arm of the service 
and strengthens the hands of the Conference Secretary; her success depends 
upon the help and co-operation of the Presiding Elder. 

Brethren, we ask this help in His name, and for His cause. Will you 
grant it ? 

Would that all the brethren give heed to the injunction — " Help those 
women." Dr. Morton says: " The Woman's Parsonage and Home Mission 
Society is the right arm of the Board of Church Extension, The women of 
that organization, are pledged to see that every houseless itinerant preacher 
shall have a home for his family, while engaged in the pastoral work of the 
church. The motto of the Board of Church Extension, is 'a church for every 
congregation' and of the Woman's Parsonage Society, 'a home for every 
preacher.' " 

Aid has been given, by our Conference Society, this year, to 4 parson- 
ages : West Lake, Gilbert, Dry Creek, and Abbeville, donating to each, 
$50.00. There are so many demands upon our society, and the work to be 
done is so great, that the necessity of multiplying organizations is realized 
as the only permanent way of increasing our receipts. 

The amount received by the Conference Treasurer this year is $472.14. 
This sum does not include the local woik done by the auxiliaries. It is said 
that missionary societies ought to have two wings — while sending the Gospel 
to the heathen in foreign lands, we should seek and save the heathen at 
home. Many of the auxiliaries are doing excellent work along this line, and 
there is an increasing interest everywhere; still it needs most earnest 
efforts, for the work will grow in proportion to our energy. 

Oh, that God's Spirit may be poured out upon our society, and that many 
more earnest and consecrated women may join in this work. 

In New Orleans we have organized an Industrial School. It is in charge 
of our City Missionary, Miss Susie Burbank, an earnest, zealous, Christian 
woman; but the school needs workers, self-sacrificing women of God, to 
move among the poor, needy and neglected women and children. We have 
in our city, a Training Class of Christian Workers, who meet weekly, and 
receive instruction irom the City Pastors, and also from Christian^physicians 
on methods and means to be used in Home Mission work. 

Humanly speaking success in anything depends upon thejndividual. 
Let us so labor that God shall see none more faithful. 

We desire a constant interest in your prayers for our Master's guidance 
and blessing upon our work and labor of love. 

We will do our best; results are with the Lord. 

MRS. FLORENCE E. RUSS, 

Con/. Cor, Secretary. 



34 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

REPORT OF BOARD OF COLPORTAGE. 

We find that our late General Colporteur, F. D. Van Valkenburgh, has 
succeeded in circulating a large number of our own publications through 
this and the adjoining Conferences during the last six years. At one time 
there spemed good reason for believing that a permanent and paying busi- 
ness could be built up in New Orleans. 

The employment of a General Colporteur and the opening up of a depot 
of supplies at Jackson, Miss., by the Mississippi Annual Conference several 
years ago, seriously interferred with the volume of business done by our 
General Colporteur at New Orleans. This necessitated the enlarging of the 
stationery department, and increasing the stocks of general and miscellane- 
ous literature, so as to meet the demands of the local city patronage, and 
raise the total business to such a condition as to cover costs and expenses of 
carrying it on. 

During the financial stringency of the present year, our Colporteur fell 
behind with the rent on the store, (No. 9 Chartres street.) occupied by him. 
The owner of the building quite hastily seized the stock and proceeded 
against him for the full amount of rent to the expiration of the lease. This 
action upon her part, sd complicated matters as to force the business to the 
wall. 

So far as your Board can determine, our Colporteur did the best he pos- 
sibly could under these peculiarly trying circumstances, and his integrity, 
and moral character have been unimpeached and above reproach, for which 
we are profoundly thankful to the God of all grace. 

In view of the financial condition of our territory, your Board has no 
recommendation to make, farther than to urge that all of our preachers, 
both traveling and local, will use diligence in endeavoring to place our books 
in the bands of all our people. 

The territory in which we labor is specially needy in this direction The 
fact ot the demand for our books being poor, but emphasizes that need the 
more and appeals to us, as those interested in the enlightenment and salva- 
tion of the people, to give our "best endeavors to the furtherance of this 
great work. 

J. B. CASSITY, President. 

F. D VAN VALKENBURGH, Secretary. 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON MEM0IK8. 



REV. ALBERT M. WAILES. 

The Committee on Memoirs finds itself unable at this time to furnish to the 
Conference any reliable data of our deceased brother's life and labors amongst us. 
For many years, Bro. Wailes had been in feeble health, unable to enter upon the 
pastoral work, and has consequently sustained a supernumerary relation to the 
Conference, serving God and helping humanity by teaching. Faithful in the exe- 
cution of this trust, and consistent and pure as a Christian minister, he annually 
passed the examination of character with the welcome endorsement of his brethren, 
and their just verdict — "Nothing against him." In the hope and Christian confi- 
dence of his brethren, we may surely trust, that the same glad verdict met him at 
the threshold of our "Father's House.'' 

Your Committee offers the following Resolutions : 

/Resolved, First, That the prayers and sympathies of the Conference be offered 
for his bereaved family, and a page of our Minutes devoted to his memory; 

Resolved, Second, That the Committee be permitted to prepare a suitable me- 
moir and forward the same to the Secretary of the Conference for publication. 

JAMES A. PARKER, 

Committee.
